We All Belong

As we gather today to welcome new families to Canada, let us take a moment to reflect on the importance of being open-minded by embracing new ideas and learning from others. In a world filled with diverse perspectives and experiences, let us celebrate inclusivity within our community by recognizing and appreciating efforts that promote acceptance and diversity. May we create safe and welcoming spaces for everyone, where open communication and respect are the pillars of our interactions.

Let us educate ourselves on diversity, equity, and inclusion, striving to promote understanding and acceptance among all individuals. Let us embrace the beauty of diversity in culture, ethnicity, and beliefs, understanding that it enriches our lives and promotes mutual understanding. By engaging with individuals from various backgrounds and working towards common goals, may we foster harmony and empathy in our diverse communities.

Today, set an example of inclusive behaviour, and show respect, kindness, and empathy towards others. Let us take the time to listen and learn from different perspectives, fostering empathy and creating an inclusive environment where all are valued.

Together, let's promote the use of inclusive language that respects all individuals and speak out against discrimination and injustice to advocate for equality. May we support diverse voices and viewpoints in our community, valuing the experiences and opinions as we strive for a more inclusive and equitable society.

Remember the journey of our generations before us who made the same choices for us for a better life. We all BELONG.
